Agudio Has A Leader

Walt Whitman combo guard Antoine Agudio is leading the IS8 in scoring. He's beginning to hear from a number of schools.

Kent State Has Early Lead

Antoine Agudio can score. Look no further than his 31 point per game average at the IS8 this fall. But, he can pass as well and programs from the east to the Midwest are taking notice.

The Walt Whitman product has flown for the most part under the radar. However, we were particularly impressed when we first saw him at the Spiece Run ‘n Slam in May.

So, why was his recruitment slow to get off the ground? "Mainly because I'm from the Island," Agudio said. "They usually don't look at Long Island kids. If you play one of the city teams you probably get noticed. Not too many Long Island guys get noticed. Jason [Fraser] got noticed because he plays with the Panthers."

So far, Kent State, Providence, Hofstra, Marist, Rider and Towson have taken notice. Kent State, Providence and Marist have offered and each came in for a home visit.

"I'm sort of leaning towards Kent State," Agudio said. "They are willing to take me even if I don't qualify. It's a good program too."

Agudio will take the ACT in the middle of October. After that, he'll set out to take some official visits. Kent State and Providence are likely to receive trips from him.
